The thing is - I know I am unfit but I feel so bad that I can't even make it through a 2 mile walk without talking a break. I'm probably 20 pounds overweight. I see people posting how much they have done and I tried the 2 miles from the "Ultimate 5 day walk plan" today and barely made it through 1 mile.
I have been tested and am relatively healthy apart from depression and anxiety.
I guess I just want to know if anyone else found it hard. I am used to people who do Insanity and things and feel like a failure or that I am just lazy?
Anyway- any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks so much!
! You are not a faliure!!! When I did my first Leslie walk, I wasn't sure I'd make it through that one mile!! I don't know your age, but I was about 48 when I started and had never done any regular exercise. So I gave myself some time to get used to the one and then worked my way up SLOWLY to doing 3+ sometimes. Even now, being almost 40 pounds lighter, I'm suprised by how winded I get when doing something like walking around town on a trip or something. Just be patient. I always say to myself "At least you moved today!" or "One mile is better than none!!" Kudos to your for exercising!! And welcome!!
